I'd like to see Janis with a beehive, I think it would really suit her features. There, I said.

 

Sorry, off-topic.

(Hehe, at the end the presenter calls her 'Janis Whitehouse'...)

 

Interesting how Janis refuses to discuss the difficult years before her divorce with Mitch, or Blake. I wonder if either of them feature much in her book.

 

Other thing I found interesting, she said several times that Mitch wasn't really there and that she had to deal with things alone. Does she mean when Amy was showing signs of addiction in 2006/2007 or when she was younger?

 

And how freaky that Amy said she probably wouldn't be at her wedding.

 

I really want to read the book, so many blank areas to fill, and Janis obviously had a very different experience of it all compared to Mitch.

Thank you for posting those Uno.

 

In the Lorraine interview Janis mentions that last day she saw Amy, I transcribed that bit for those of you who can't watch it, as it came up in the Daily Mail article:

 

"The Good thing was, I saw her the day before. But it's, who would have known?"

And was she ok then? Was she in reasonable...?

"Not really, no."

But you didn't feel that, when you saw her that day, that something terrible was happening?

"No, exactly. No I didn't."

There was no indication that there was anything that was...?

"No. Definitely not."

But you must... You say that you've got that situation where you thought that you, over the years, especially towards the end, that you might lose her

"Yes. It was often the way that I thought 'This may be the last'. But thank God that I said on that day 'I love you Amy', and she said to me 'I love you mummy'."

So that's the memory

"Oh, absolutely, yes."

At least you've got that comfort, how awful would it have been if it had been horrendous

"Yes. Oh for sure"

Or an argument or something, at least you were able to tell her that..

"but we were always loving. Always."

 

They also showed this lovely picture of Janis with Amy from the book which I thought was worth sharing, I'm afraid it's a bit blurry though:

I've got the Kindle Version and finished it today. It is better written as Mitchs Book and I think it is much more honest. Very interesting is the part after Blake has "vanished".
She describes, how Amy has changed....and not to her best. She was off the drugs, but she was very heavy on booze. And no one could handle her, her behavior was extremely erratic.
I think, Amy was a very unhappy person during her last two years. And mostly drunk. Not tipsy, she was a full alcoholic. Her last weight were 6.5 Stone, in her Camden home were only booze- wodka and white wine- and Haribos.
It's a sad book.
And I am really sorry for Janis and the rest of the family.

Does anyone know about when this pic was taken?  Blurry or not, Amy looks pretty healthy here. Compare this to Amy sitting on the bed in a motel room in the TDOTO music video.

Looks like the Frank era to me, with Amy's longer, straighter hair.

Nah, I reckon Amy is 15/16 in that photo, she looks like a younger teenager on holiday with her mum...

Yeah... seems like Amy was never really all that healthy though, as her bulimic (and alcoholic) behaviors started pretty early and bulimics are usually a normal weight so who knows...

Has anyone found an any type of ebook for this available for this in the US yet???  Usually Amazon.com in the US will have a place-holder page (sometimes for a few months, even) before the book becomes available, but not for this one.


Amy, if you are up there listening, thank you for sharing the incredible soundtracks of your life ...

Nope, I even searched on Random House's website. All I've found is a listing in NZ with a release date of 10/17 and the Kindle version is now on AU's Amazon. :(
